These silences have killed words on my tongue.
I gulp down a bloodbath each time I'm left alone.
Yet, I crave these moments of honesty.
In my mind, I relive my life.
A truth, a lie.
Outside, I share this world.
But inside, I am alone.
And it is in this state, we all live.
Floating in an unending darkness,
looking for some meaning,
looking for hope.
